Valentino Rossi ‘worried’ as Ducati struggles in Sepang

Not even Valentino Rossi could put a positive spin on his Sepang MotoGP test struggle after the Italian was left outside of the top ten and nearly two seconds off the pace in Malaysia. The 32-year-old climbed off his sickbed after being struck by a fever yesterday (Wednesday) but he was unable to make significant progress in solving turning and cornering...

Two now perpetuating the same bollocks

in order to slag Stoner - pathetic. Same tired lines and Stoner slander from Wosideg and Hugelean littler both MCN and motomatters. None of the educated posters on this site keep regurgitating the same dross to attack any rider. Casey using Nicky's settings. Never happened. Did they share data? Yes, that's what they do in a team. A policy which continues in the new yellow and red era. Did Stoner try settings similar to Nicky's. Quite probably. But remember little detractors Stoner was running 42mm forks and Nicky decided to stick with the 48's. So your point is what?

As for Evilfish and the average lap time. What sort of fantasy is that you're peddling? There is no 'average' lap time figure. All the factory Honda and Yamaha riders had a superior race pace to Rossi, and a few others besides I dare say.

Interesting? It's specious & meaningless

Rider A does 3 laps. Rider B does 19 laps. Arbitrary nonsense. That's even stretching the lies, damn lies and statistics adage.

O.K Evilfish

I've found the article you refer to. Nonetheless it is nothing more than mischievous nonsense. Very unlike motogp.com to stir to tabloid pot.

Me neither Nostro, it's been on most sites. Nicky was interviewed. he was doing better than Casey in the first half of last year as you will remember, Nicky said that he was pushing the softer package and Casey the stiffer one, when Casey started using the softer package his results improved. If you have documented evidence that proves otherwise post it I'll be happy to read and accept it. As for the stats I don't know what it means , as Casey and Dani were much faster than Rossi but all riders did over 100 laps which should be enough to post a reasonable stat..

average laptimes

Nostro, i do agree that the laptimes on motogp.com are pretty much nonsense , but stoners averages times do look good and he done a fair few laps too. If he can be consistant this year he's gotta be the favourite for the title!!

LOL! Avg lap time my ass!

Rossi's "average" was taken from only 6 laps. It's very surprising that Motogp.com would write such crap. And from what I've read, Rossi hasn't been able to make the hard front work and has been using the soft front. No one using the soft front in the race. If the case being he hasn't been able to use the hard and set his times on the soft front, he's in a bigger pile of poo than what any of the times say.

Bloody hell

Good luck everyone with the reasons/rationals and posturing - its WSBK time now.
